I have just returned from the weekend in Flanders to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice This book was recommended reading by the tour company and I am so pleased that I invested the few pounds it cost Whilst I did not use the book as a walking guide this time I will certainly return to the Ypres Salient in the future and I will try out some of the walks then This time as part of an organised coach tour I followed the itinerary and for each site visited I read the appropriate section whilst we were en route On arrival I was able to research the Cemetery Register and locate the graves of the men mentioned in the book It made the visits focused and in some small way personal and relevant and I felt some small connection with these men and boys who passed away so long agoI was very fortunate during my visit to Tyne Cot on Saturday 10th November to meet Paul Reed the author who very graciously agreed to sign my book it is just as well I got the paperback version and not the Kindle edition The book is very well written and easy to follow I would highly recommend this for anyone driving or walking around Ypres or even going on a coach tour It really will help you get much out of your visit and it will give you the chance to connect with some of the men who will lie forever in Flanders Fields

I recently bought this book for a 5 day solo trip I undertook to Ypres While I only took one walk from the book on that later the book accompanied me every day allowing me to dip into the book on several occasions at various cemeteries and landmarksHaving been to Ypres on several occasions I was keen to undertake a walk that would take me to locations I hadn t been to before as a result I undertook the Hellfire Corner and Potijze Walk while the walk is advertised as 68 miles you will walk further when you visit the various cemeteries I also added a further visit to Aeroplane Cemetery just up the road from the French Cemetery on the walk Each landmark is well covered and contains the details of some of the men remembered in the book giving the reader a point of interest to visit rather than wandering aimlesslyI d highly recommend this book for anyone visiting Ypres even if you re not planning to walk anywhere having said that the best way to discover the ground is to do it on foot

Walking Ypres (Battleground I) review Å eBook or Kindle ePUB characters ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Paul Reed The medieval city of Ypres will forever be associated with the Great War especially by the British From 1914 to 1918 it was the key strong point in the northern sector of the Western Front and the epic story of its defense has taken on almost legendary status The city and the surrounding battlefields are also among the most visited sites on the Western Front and Paul Reed's walking guide is an essential travellng companion for anyone who is eager to e. Well researched well written well illustrated and well presented and if that is not enough it is exactly the right size for those visiting the areaToo often when discussing the events of WW1 authors concentrate on damning the generals and worshipping heroes In this instance however we have the stories of ordinary folk of all ranks placed together in fascinating detail Whereas each account is a short story in its own right once combined they are forged together into a remarkable document which does not repeat what the reader may have read elsewhere The book is written in such a way that the reader instantly becomes as interested in the French troops on horseback Indian soldiers the donning of gasmasks or the role of the stretcher bearer as they are with the death of Brigadier General Charles Fitzclarence VC or the man that might so easily have changed Canada forever had he survived the warThe stated aim of the book is of course to assist and guide those who visit the former WW1 battleground areas which surround Ypres For four years during the Great War of 1914 1918 these were where the majority of British and Commonwealth soldiers were based and where one uarter of all their deaths took place It was also a war which changed British attitudes forever The way in which generals on both sides sent thousands of men to their deaths in a carnage never seen before led to a change in attitudes between British working men and the upper ruling classes No longer would that man be so uick to use such words as M Lord or even Sir No longer would he doff his cap as a mark of respect no longer would the ordinary police Constable be so uick to arrest that man just because a well dressed person had ordered him so to do Those changes came with the realisation that far too many ordinary men had died at the frontWhereas the serious subject matter is handled properly throughout it is the way in which author Paul Reed skilfully combines trivial detail alongside the central theme of War which creates such an excellent readIn short if you want to know about the First World War of 1914 1918 you do not have to visit Ypres at all Instead you will learn much about that war by reading this book than might otherwise be the case Having read it you will probably consider making the trip and will be pleased to note the author has also included visitor information and what to bring For those who are making the journey the work is altogether uite excellent and therefore indispensableNMBritish army major retired
